Orangeburg, SC (WCBD) – The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office says an Orangeburg man out on bond for murder has now been charged with shooting his former lover’s friend.

“This is an individual who knew he was in trouble again due to his reckless actions, immediately fled the area and has now been brought back,” said Sheriff Leroy Ravenell. “We thank the US Marshals for their help in apprehending this subject.”

Shagura Mack, 41, has been charged with attempted murder in connection with the early Saturday shooting.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators were called out to Autolane Street around 2 a.m. after a woman notified authorities of the incident.

The woman told investigators that around 1:40 a.m. Mack barged into her home where she and the victim were located.

Mack initially pointed a handgun at her, then her male friend before shooting him, she said.

The woman then fled the residence with her young daughter.

She told investigators she and Mack were in a relationship years ago.

Ravenell said after Mack was identified as the suspect, he was taken into custody in Richland County on Tuesday.

OCSO Victim’s Advocate Ashley Robinson told the court during Wednesday’s hearing that Mack is currently out on bond for a 2014 charge of murder.

In that case, Mack is accused of opening fire on a vehicle parked off Belleville Road during what was described by witnesses to have been a drug buy.

The victim in that 2014 case made it to the hospital only to succumb to his injuries during surgery.

Orangeburg County Magistrate Derrick Dash denied Mack bond. More charges are pending.
